She may now be HTTP 404'ed, but the ongoing errors and harms are built in. Clearly, HHS needs a new direction. But we shouldn’t pinpoint the problem as who is running it but rather the mindset – the hubris of believing that good intentions are enough, and a contempt for the freedoms and choices of the American people, combined with an abysmal understanding of economics, human behavior, and the effects of perverse incentives.
